“Take the stones people throw at you. And use them to build a monument.”- Ratan Tata
Personally, his words have helped me, accept criticism and turn it into a triumph story, which is what everyone should do when they are being disparaged. Also, Tata believes in synergy which teaches us to walk together to achieve goals with ecstasy and commitment. I was a pessimist then but now following his words, I am stirred to look at the sunny side of failure and fight back until I achieve my goals.
